The New Sincerity trend : pursuing a different kind of happiness

Abstract : Defined by its ironic vision of society, the New Sincerity trend in cinema developed throughout the 1990s, giving way to the debunking of American founding myths. Focusing mainly on films by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach this talk will seek to analyse how those directors re-evaluated the pursuit of happiness in specific moments of history, and how to some extent, they "reactivated" the New Hollywood trend two decades later. This talk will be based on a PowerPoint presentation including still images and video clips.
